This post is a little late, but these are the cards I made for the latest round of Cards for Soldiers. The challenge was to make different types of cards (birthday, love, miss you, etc) using one color scheme. I picked out a patterned paper and used that as the base for all the cards.
The pics aren't that great - but I was in a rush.
For the flower card, I used my Cuttlebug to cut the circles - great when making a lot of cards at once. The Happy Birthday card was made using Stampin' Up stamp and punch.
